i-cut, inc. signs OEM agreement with Anhui Jiachen

Press release from the issuing company

Lake Geneva, WI – i-cut, Inc., an EskoArtwork OEM business unit, announces it has signed an OEM agreement with Anhui Jiachen Intelligent Digital Control Science & Technology Co., Ltd., based in Hefei, China. Anhui Jiachen has licensed use of i-cut Vision Pro for its CNC router and plasma systems, used for the creation of advertising displays, logo plate making, packaging and printing, and other industrial products. The company has recently received ISO90001:2008 International Quality accreditation and European Union CE Approval. Products have been exported to more than 40 countries and areas all over the world.

Jiachen's JD series of CNC routing machines features an advanced DSP digit-control system for simpler use and maintenance, and a unique intelligent control system that delivers high speed processing, synchronization of curves and straight lines, and smoother curves. They are compatible with a wide range of CAD/CAM systems. Jiachen's DLZ-1325 Plasma CNC cutting machine is mainly used to cut metallic materials such as armor plate, aluminum and iron. The gear wheel and rack moving and rail moving systems guarantee exceptional working speeds and precision. The professional non-touching plasma head can cut a wide variety of metallic materials from 1-30mm thick. Like the engraving systems, the cutting machine has an advanced DSP digit-control system for simpler maintenance and operator use, and the spindle motor control system assures high processing speeds. The cutters are compatible with most popular CAD/CAM software.

Vision control is necessary with digital finishing systems because all printed materials contain size, rotation and scaling distortions that produce inaccurate digital die cutting, if not corrected. Using i-cut Vision Pro, print material specifications are taken from the work stream – including cutting keys that supply operators with optimized tool settings and blade/bit recommendations – and are processed with preset cutting parameters. This makes the finishing set-up even easier and simplifies the tasks necessary for starting each unique job. Subsequently, set-up times are minimal – and in many cases, virtually eliminated.

Jiachen will be incorporating i-cut Vision Pro to offer more accurate and faster cutting and routing in its machines. With i-cut Vision Pro, jobs are completed faster and more accurately. A new registration algorithm delivers improved quality with placement registration. The tool offset algorithm handles close curves as one unit, while improvements have also led to smoother cuts. A new, advanced help system is available from all dialogs, with multimedia teaching videos, schematics, and animations.

"We are pleased that Jiachen has selected our i-cut Vision Pro systems for their routers and plasma systems, " remarks Steve Bennett, EskoArtwork Vice President, Sign & Display Business. "Jiachen is known for its engineering expertise, attention to world standards, and manufactures exceptional routing and cutting systems. We are delighted that i-cut Vision Pro systems will make their systems even more productive for their customers."

"The i-cut Vision Pro systems are very well-known for the accuracy and speed they can add to digital cutting systems," explains Daniel Armstrong, Jiachen Manager, Foreign Trade Department. "We look forward to implementing them into our systems."
